to show obama with a, some advantages in the electoral votes, so, i think both sides are looking at the polls and seeing hope. >> dan, let's step back briefly here, how important is this election? we always say the elections are the most important in x years, but i think this is the most important election since ronald reagan certainly in terms of setting the direction of the country and validating or not the huge expansion of government that barack obama has promoted in the first term. >> i agree, paul. i mean, historically the country is divided in the past century between the private economy and the public government. and there's always been a division of duties there. barack obama is trying to take spending from 20% of grosse pointe woods over the last 25 years up to about 23%. >> paul: for the starters. >> for starters and plus, make the federal government the lead role in the direction of the economy in a way that no previous president has ever done and i think that that is the decision the american people have to decide is whether they want washington, the federal governme
for your vote. thank you so very much, and god bless america. >> not sure when mitt romney and barack obama recorded the weekend addresses. but they had to squeeze it in on a busy day. each traveling through a number of battleground states, campaigning on this third day, three days before election day. we have live road to the white house coverage on c-span. in 20 minutes or so, we will take you to englewood, colorado. mitt and ann romney have their last stop of the day. they have been in new hampshire and iowa. we follow that with your reaction. later, president obama who has been in four states -- virginia will be his last in last virginia, jiffyw, lube live pavilion. he will be joined by bill clinton. lots of lot of political coverage. road to the white house coverage on c-span. over the past week and a half on our "washington journal" program, we have been focusing on those battleground states and taking a close look at each of them. we will give you a brief look and an overall view of the important state of ohio. host: we have been highlighting key battleground states as part of a seri
vote. >> paul: dampen that. >> and i spoke to a pollster not working for the obama campaign and agreed with dan's sentiment, turnout was an issue for democrats, enthusiasm is down, but also says that he thinks this allowed obama, even though he missed some days on the campaign trail, allowed him to get out there and show some leadership, some bipartisanship, thanks to the new jersey governor, republican chris christie be being at his side for a couple of days. >> paul: i want to ask you, new jersey residents, and generally a fan of governor chris christie, what do you make of this embrace of the governor with the president? >> well, our colleague peggy noonan, says you want to keep your friends close, but your president closer. i think certainly, mr. christy is dealing with had an emergency and trying to get help as soon as possible. there is a sense that these kind of situations will make people turn and embrace big government, but you're already seeing a lot of of flaws in the federal response, fema not getting a lot of these generators that they promised online quickly, so, i don't
the direction of that state and the voting electrorate has your own new polling out this morning showing a dead heat there. obama and romney both pulling 49% of support out of likely voters. this is in line with that tightening national race according to a number of major polls. so why is, or is it your view, that ohio is kind of the microcosm of the country? >> ohio is, indeed, fredricka. it always is. it's tied this time, but if you were to compare, let's say, texas or utah with new york and put them all in one state, you would have ohio. >> so the president has traveled to that state at least 24 times, mitt romney somewhere more than 40 times this year alone. both of them clearly know it's a very important state. but at this juncture, as the two still will descend on ohio with just a few days before election day, if everything goes according to plan, what do ohioans need to hear from them? >> i think they need assurance from the president that things will get better. things are bad, everyone knows that, but that they'll improve, that the worst is over, if he can convey that effectively. gove
of citizens can participate in the process and every person can exercise the right to vote. the obama campaign thanks the republican governor when he did that and then with a boost from early voting, democrat barack obama won the state of florida and the presidency. oops. last year florida's new republican governor rick scott decided he was not going to make that mistake again. rather than expanding voting, the new one decided he would cut the days for early voting almost in half in order to make voting harder. look. at least that's how it works. long, long, long lines for early voting in polls places across florida except this year it's long lines with no relief in sight. we have been getting pictures ever since early voting started in the state. this is how democracy works in florida this year. look at this. get in line. wait and wait. wait an hour. wait four hours. wait five hours. yesterday florida democrats and the nonpartisan group the league of women voters asked the governor to do something about the long lines. they asked him to add a day of voting to open the polls on the last sunday
because racist comments, i'm not voting for president obama. [applause] i had to get it off my chest. i feel a lot better. all joking aside, we live in an upside down world where saying harmless words like that can bear huge attacks from the other side and yet, the other side can say very toxic comments without any repercussions under the same standard. one example is dr. mark lamont hill. he takes on columbus to shakespeare. and in our current climate is the only thing worse than a white spur can -- person speaking those words is a black person as that's out of line. all you have to do is look at stacy -- and thank you ann coulter for standing up for her so valiantly. we really appreciate that. [applause] it would be funny and even absurd if it wasn't so wrong and that is the truth. as frederick douglass says liberty is meaningless when the right to utter one's opinion has ceased to exist. ann coulter is not just a champion of freedom of speech. she practices it feverishly every single day and i will leave you with us. i think the most accurate comment about ann's book came from "the a
will vote for president obama this time around, why are they waiting for having success of the state and local level? >> hispanics are not monolithic, and when you look at florida, you have a cuban-american community that has historically been very republican. i think people are interested and want to report hispanic candidates, they are good. if marco rubio had had a pro in negation reform position, he would be the candidate, but since he does not, he was not chosen. eventually, i think the more sober voices will have more weight. tavis: what you think is the future of marco rubio? he did not win the hispanic vote. what is your read on his future? >> he is an intelligent man. he is quite articulate. does he play in florida? i am not sure. does he play in taxes, i am not sure. marco rubio is seen in some ways of being the latino face of a party that is very harsh to latinos. >> the democratic mayor acquitted himself quite nicely. what is his future? >> he is probably the biggest star they have the right now. he is a very smart guy. he is highly educated and very different from a lot

[ buzzer ] >> stephanie: and mitt romney's official campaign -- [♪ "world news tonight" theme ♪] >> stephanie: there is really not much difference. mitt romney compared obama to chavezes and castro. >> yeah. >> stephanie: he is running a spanish ad in florida claiming that fidel castro's niece would support president obama. mitt romney gives chavez the news he desires but has no right to. >> he is just like castro! >> stephanie: smells like desperation.

obama tweeting this november vote for a president who will lead on climate change. it is worth noting bloomberg did have tough words for the president saying mr. obama embrace addy vicive and, quote, populist agenda during his first term, and by the way, matt and savannah, today is the last day some outside event could interrupt the presidential race. it's the final jobs report before tuesday. >> we'll be watching closely. chuck todd from washington. tom brokaw joins us, our nbc news special correspondent. >> good morning, matt. >> you always hear people talk about a possible october surprise. do you think this storm sandy could be an october surprise? >> well, we've had a series of them. the president not showing up for the first debate, benghazi and then this surprise. the storm was much larger than anybody thought that it might be two weeks ago, three weeks ago. >> how will it impact the race though? >> i don't know. it's hard to say. i think that the endorsement by mayor bloomberg may not move the needle, for example, in colorado, but in ohio and in places where they are trying to

votes for obama because it might help us now. if i thought for mitt romney it might help -- if i voted my, children down the road. host: the earlier caller talking about voters oppression. a couple of editorials we want to share with you. from mitt romney's hometown of in detroit. top reasons to re-elect barack obama is what the editorial says. with a myriad of conflicts that enter the middle east, not to mention the u.s. tense relations with china and russia, the president has to have a steady, learned hand on the tiller. mitt romney does not have that hand. obama's first term prove he can deliver at home under the worst imaginable circumstances, battling multiple crisis that individually would have saw lesser presidents. abroad, obama has restored american credibility and influence that was frittered away by george bush. with a refocus on job security and long-term sustainability, his second four years could impress even more. from the democrats' line in georgia. caller: thank you for taking my call. i am very frustrated. first of all, i think it should be recounted because -- to vot
will win florida and the presidency. caller: in 2008, president obama won the latino vote in 34 daby a large margin, 15 points. and the latino vote in florida is 14% of the electorate. that is a huge number to try to -- for a republican to now try to regrab back from the democrats. what is your thought on the latino vote? >> we doll very well, better than anywhere else in the country. i think we will do much better than 2008. i think we have a chance to win it. i am not programming that. but i think we have a chance. i don't think any community in florida has been hurt more than the hispanic community, in terms of unemployment and the loss of the ability to create new jobs and businesses. you are starting to see that percolate. you are starting to see that reflect in the support we are getting. i am very excited about how well we are going to do among hispanics. >> greta: what state are nu? >> pennsylvania. we came popen -- we came to pennsylvania. 200 people, it was fantastic. i was earlier in the day in new hampshire. i will be in ohio tomorrow. i have been to nevada multiteletimes
to obama, but i think among the sliver of people who, you know, probably voted for obama four years ago and are not sure now, i think this could help. >> how many do you think there are? >> standing next to chris christie helps. >> -- in cincinnati or waukesha, wisconsin -- >> it helps with the media though. it helps with our point of view. let me ask you, everybody goes by the polls and they tend to be 47/47 which means six people haven't made up their mind. i'm asking you as a pro. aren't there a lot of people who are more like the group you described, voted for obama once, worried about him this time, may go with the other guy if he has a good night. can they come back from the first debate saying i'm back where i was? how many of them are there potentially? >> i think there are some out there. but the question is how many of them have early voted? the proliferation of early voting, there were some voting after the first debate, between the second and third debate. i think there are some of those who are not sure and have been looking for a sign. if you haven't voted sort of right aw
barack obama, we will burn this mother. [ bleep ] down. >> number six. >> if you vote early you don't have to pay taxes. i'm sorry that's not accurate. >> o.h. god i love that. it's so fun. >> yes, it's not that fun. our city has got a way better calling response thing. new york! yeah. >> number two. >> early voters will receive a $5 million donation from donald trump. >> mr. attorney general, as i remember, mitt romney wrote that op ed that said the gm should go through a managed bankruptcy, which they did which the president says that's essentially what car industry. mr. attorney general. >> what is that related to? >> what. >> a deal that went down before the storm ever happened. if bloomberg gets this date, you're going to come out and endorse president obama and then tie it to climate change, they have to go through this. that was a back door deal because no one in their right mind would go out yesterday and say i'm endorseing president obama because of his climate change stance. that's crazy town. >> thethe number one good thing about voting early, ladies and gentlemen. >> ho
campaign has invested heavily in early voting, president obama had a very significant lead among those voters, so the romney camp is going to be all about election day. that's their -- that's their long ball but it could not be closer. every vote matters here in ohio. both camps doing everything they can to get out their vote on tuesday. >> every vote matters everywh e everywhere. get out and vote, everybody. vote early. we'll talk to you again at 1:00 eastern time so i'll see you again soon. thanks for dropping by. a smaller more efficient government or an invisible hand to assist and protect those in need? president obama and mitt romney, guys, they have very fundamentally different visions of government and what it should do for you. it is capitalism on trial. which version will you choose? 5. and everyone, but her... likes 50% more cash. but, i have an idea. do you want a princess dress? yes how about some cupcakes? yes lollipop? yes! do you want an etch a sketch? yes! do you want 50% more cash? no you got talent.

." president obama voted early. do you think that's going to play a role? >> early voting obviously very important. we were talking about this earlier. the polls break a big way in early voting for the president. >> the engagement there so far appears to be for the president. there are other polls that you look at in terms of the direction of the economy, that you see mitt romney closing in. you see this thing heating up, and you get to a point where i'm not sure there's anyone who actually really knows, has a gut, has an absolute instinct as to what's going to happen. >> if you know what's going on right now, read dickens. it was the best of times, it was the worst of times. i can show you ten polls and you'll say there is no way barack obama is going to win. and ten other polls would say mitt romney is sunk. >> an associated press poll has him up 49 to 45 with women. do you think that maybe stemmed from the debate? he was a little more moderate in the debate? how is he picking up these female voters right now? >> i have no idea. >> you're asking the wrong person. >> i have no idea. and
close. most of the polls show obama ahead. i tend to believe that obama has a better get out the vote organization. the republicans have proven in wisconsin and n the recall that they can play on that turf which makes ohio very tough state to call. i personally i would give the edge to obama, but that is me reading tea leaves as you said. i do believe in the end ohio we'll be looking at the winner of ohio as the next president of the united states. >> greta: i think everyone feels terrible what is happening to the eastern seaboard. it's gone farther west on the hurricane and inflicted blizzard. but politically, is this something that is to the advantage of the president. can they actually move a point or two? >> i think first, it froze the race. there has not been a lot of movement. the media has been focused on sandy and less on the presidential campaign. second of all, think it's going to affect, it can affect turnout but most places like new jersey and new york. i'm not sure it's going to have an effect. on the other hand the president is getting good marks and governor chris chris
. some of the machines people are voting for mitt romney and it's coming up barack obama. they say it's because of the salbration. it's quirky though, it's not going the other way. trying to vote for romney and ending up obama. i don't know. maybe a paper ballot wouldn't a bad thing. >> bob: i don't know who thought of that but a hell of a good idea. there you go. one more thing is up next. ♪ ♪ [ cheeping ] [ male announcer ] you hear that? that's the sound of car insurance compani these days. here a cheap, there a cheap, everywhere a cheap... you get it. so, what if instead of just a cheap choice, you could make a smart choice? like, esurance for example. they were born online and built to save people money from the beginning. it's what they've always done. not just something they cheap about. that's insurance for the modern world. esurance. now backed by allstate. click or call. >> andrea: time for one more thing. greg? >> greg: i got my books in.

voters. one thing that is helping president obama is that early vote, the overwhelming number of people who've already voted early say that they are backing president obama. mitt romney has a little bit of a better score over obama on the economy. in florida, but in ohio it's president obama with the slight edge on who would better handle the economy. >> okay, so what is the interpretation of these numbers, though. does it mean it's all about getting out there to vote? i mean, it looks like president obama has the lead with the early voting. >> he does. and actually, just look at the totality of the poll right now. these two states, ohio and florida, are perhaps the biggest electoral prizes come election night. if president obama is able to win ohio, he secures his midwest firewall, as long as he's able to win wisconsin and iowa. meanwhile, on florida, that is a must-win state for mitt romney with its 29 electoral votes. if somehow he loses that state, you can actually see president obama getting past 270 without winning other battleground states. and so those two states might be the mo
, last week you said that the latino vote is being undercounted in the polls and that president obama actually has a bigger lead than everyone thinks. i want to get anna's take on that one. >> you know, we could spend all morning here discussing the skewed polls. if they look good from my side, the democrats think it look s skewed. i think we're going to go into a nose spin and we don't want to suffer from political schizophrenia. my advice is that we don't obsess about polls because it really could lead to temporary insanity between now and november 6th. i just saw two polls last night from florida. one mitt romney six points up on barack obama, and the second one, which came out five minutes later, had president obama two points up on mitt romney. it's a very tricky discussion. >> it certainly is. a little bit of temporary insanity is okay as we get close to election day. maria, do you still stand by your prediction? >> absolutely. and frankly, a lot of analysts agree with that. if you look at what of george bush's own pollsters said when he was president and running was that no rep
he has an ad bragging he voted against the bail-out and auto industry and says he took on the obama administration. a lot of democrats if they win is because they ran against the president. bad sign. >> bob: they ran against him in two con seventive states -- conservative states. >> andrea: 15 seats up for grabs. >> bob: i haven't seen one democrat who isn't running with the president. there is a lot of mistakes that depend on electricity for voting. states who are particularly close like virginia, still has a lot of power outals; particularly, in rural areas. if they don't vote by electronic ballot, they have to take the provisional ballot and vote by handwritten ballots so they won't be counted for three or four day days. it will be true in new jersey and maryland. they're going for obama anyway. but pennsylvania another one. hope they get the electricity gets back to the voting machines. >> eric: it may be the best thing. given what is going on, there is a lot of alleged voter fraud going on. some of the machines people are voting for mitt romney and it's coming up barack obama.
's important to me, but i'm more concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> people lined up and waited patiently for the opportunity to their vote. earlier tonight -- there are referendums for it voters. same-sexand dream at, marriage, and one to expand gambling. table games and additional slots statewide. the biggest provision is in theg for casinos county. the expansion of gambling says it will mean that jobs and a more money for school. that is not so. it is no wonder some marylanders say they didn't know who it is for. >> here it is an right thing. if question seven passes, and that 2017 it is projected bring in a bomb. i'm billion dollars. casino operators can pocket 900 million. regulators of get a share. $750 million must go to the education trust fund. is $150 million more per without it. that is the main per student spending increases. >> the gambling revenue that the earmarks -- it says is. know the more money that and can replace of
of the state. we will see what kind of "margin call, obama has here. host: voting systems in your state, how do you vote? guest: i voted two weeks ago. we have early voting and starts three weeks before the election. you can vote early. about one-third of the total votes cast will be cast before election day. a lot of the stuff that's happening right now in terms of trying to influence voters is wasted, because a lot of people have already voted. you can vote in your present before the election and then we have -- we vote in precincts across the state in every corner of the state by machine. host: if there were any issues and a recount was necessary, how does that work in iowa? guest: we do have a procedure for a recount. if an election is within 2 percentage points, it's an automatic recount. you can petition for a recount if it if it is a little larger than that. so there's a possibility of a recount. we have never had that and it's never decided an election, but there are procedures in place to have a recount. we anticipate this election will be close enough for that could be an issue. host:
voters have to vote for change. obviously a borrowed line from the obama campaign of '08. listen. >> if you believe america should be on a better course, if you are tired of being tired, then i ask you to vote for real change. paul ryan and i will bring real change to america from day one! >> day one, bold change, and here with 96 hours before the polls actually open on tuesday, kid rock was the opening act here a little while ago. they are predicting as many as 20,000 to 30,000. that would be the biggest crowd he's gotten in the entire campaign. >> tired of being tired. it's a big sprint ahead, karl. >> it's a crazy one. thed 6 -- the 96 hours, he will have 14 or 15 events, he will be dupe lawtive events in iowa and virginia and new hampshire. it's virtually nonstop. in fact, he will are to pull from all- nighters in order to do it, in order to get back to boston election night. he will wrap it up in new hampshire, the place he started and the 96-hour sprint kicking off request a crowd this big, the romney campaign has to like what they are seeing tonight. >> carl, thanks. much
to asheville, we are a liberal city. i have already voted for obama and i voted for him in 2008 and i think he is the answer for this country, not mid romney. host: talk to us. guest: western north carolina is a fairly conservative area. asheville is a liberal pocket within western north carolina. it is true that the website for the graham association had listed more medicine as a cult until recently, until they had kind words for mitt romney and they took that off their website. make about what you will. host: our next call comes from edwin in new bern, n.c., on our line for republicans. caller: i am glad to see you on the air but my thing is -- in this election has been more nuclear polarized and i voted for barack obama the first time but he will not get my vote the second time. he does not have a plan for this country. if we continue to go in the direction we are going, things will not be corrected. rather than attacking the person, he waits until almost the last 10 days to insult our intelligence to have a booklet of all of his plants which are just a rehash plans of the last four years.

obama talk about the importance of those votes. >> let me point out about cuyahoga county. president obama beat john mccain in 2008 in cuyahoga county by a larger number of votes and he won the entire state. so it's really important for cuyahoga county. but a very important place for him to run up those margins. we will see bill clinton campaign up in akron, ohio, even further north and east of cleveland. a high point in this state. >> what we talk a lot about is what we add journalists and the talking class talk about what regular americans, ohio and they're talking about. of all the people i spoke with yesterday, only one person brought up hurricane sandy. a lot of attention was paid to michael bloomberg's endorsement. the big picture, do those kinds of things resinate? do they matter, do you think? >> i think on a text tual level, the message coming out of hurricane sandy was bipartisanship. even if they're not monitoring events as closely here as they are in the east, they're getting kind of a good feeling about the president's ability to work with people on the other side of the
